Tangerine Tuxedo is a popular style of tea in China. This unique treat is made by hollowing out a tangerine, filling it with black tea and then letting it dry as one. The fruit infuses the leaves with its citrus notes, smoothing out the earthy tea when brewed. Its traditional use is for soothing the stomach and is commonly drunk in the winter months or after meals.
Please note that the number of pieces is approximate and may vary as the tea is packaged by weight.

If you're looking for the ultimate in classy menswear, the answer has long been the tuxedo. Separated from the humble suit by its satin details (suits are commonly made all from one material), patent leather shoes, and bowtie, it’s been the favored attire for black-tie events for decades. That is, until we hit the fifties. An era when fashion got wild, it saw the addition of wild colors, patterns, and cuts the world had never seen. The most infamous of these is, of course, the powder blue darling of seventies’ prom fame. We’re just wondering… does it come in tangerine?
